A LA Card Monkey! #94

Exciting news I was one of the cards picked last week to be a guest designer for A-LA-Card Monkey!!  EEEEK!!  Too cool!
So this week is Birthday Week for the Challenge which is great because we always need Birthday Cards!

The Sketch made me giggle and reminded me of my cats attitude.
You can check out the challenge HERE

Here is what I came up with for the challenge.  I attended a tutorial class for a new technique that involves clear tape sheets and fine glitter and copics.  So I wanted to change it up and make a Stampin UP! Technique but get the same sort of look-  after some trial and error I did it!  So love the look too!

The technique I am talking about it the ladybug panel.  It involves heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds so you can just imagine the shine on this card!!!
The base of this card is Lucky Limeaid then a panel of Cherry Cobbler run through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing paisley folder.
I used the pleated ribbon from the New Mini in Pear Pizzaz.
I made the extra long tag by placing my stamped image in the back of the decorative label punch to create the decorative edge, very cool technique, especially if you love to layer large images that will not fit into the punch like I do.
The stamp is from the new Sale-a-bration set  called Outlined Occasions.  I just love the confetti look all around the words, makes it so festive.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeaid and Tempting Turquoise to the letters and of course some Dazzling Diamonds.  Next I added some linen thread to buttons from a Sale-a-bration button set there are 72 buttons in this set in cute patterns for fun embellishing your scrapbook pages and cards!
 I continued with the Lady Bugs and the Paisley Embossing on the inside of the card.
 Hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch this week
